  fredthebear: There's not much to say about this one. It initially looks like a French Defense, Exchange Variation. Black's final position is secure from penetration by the White pieces.
Nov-06-16  tonsillolith: It closely resembles a French defense up through <1. e4>, but then it begins to diverge at <1...e5>.
